  • low return for the public s investment with relatively little land preserved and not even getting a chance at most pieces except when we are able to use zoning or environmental law and public sentiment to show the owner the wisdom of becoming a willing seller I d like to suggest a different model that can dramatically improve the amount of land preserved When New Jersey passed the Highlands Act in 2004 it created a preservation core which imposed 88 acre zoning and seized the speculative value of the land It provided several years for speculators to cash out by selling their development rights at 2004 values Many have not cashed out because they hope that a TDR program will return to them the speculative value that has been seized Maintaining farmland as farmland is in the public interest and so New Jersey has allowed a very low tax rate on farm assessed properties since WWII and since then these lands have greatly escalated in value not because of some improvement made by the land owner farmer but because of the public s investment in roads and other infrastructure Maintaining farmland without houses is more than ever in the public interest and allowing conversion from farmland is not in the public interest Because of its long term investment in keeping taxes low on farmland and investment in infrastructure that has sent values soaring New Jersey can justify claiming some of the development rights of farmland assessed properties Even claiming a lien of only one dollar of the development rights would prevent the sale of these lands without New Jersey s permission Those wanting to develop their farms would have to sell the development or speculative value to the state just as in the Highlands Act The cost of buying such development rights can be roughly calculated because it will be free of the giant run ups in price that are necessary when we are trying to entice the willing seller to chose preservation over development Therefore we could approximate how much to raise unlike the current system where there will never be enough money and it will always be sucked up by developers playing the system Often the public is paying for the speculative value in the conversion of farmland that ironically as I have pointed out has been created by public investment As the supply of available land dwindles this competition and the attendant cost run ups will worsen risking the public s support for preservation funding Stopping the conversion of farmland is in the public s interest both as a source of food and as an economic engine for the region Also wood lots that are farm land assessed have value in combating global warming that has not yet been calculated and should not be lost Our endangered and threatened species current dismal prospects for survival would be much improved under this habitat saving model We wonder why the peoples in far away lands cannot act to save
